al-Masjid al-Aqsa's inscriptions tell us the whole story: The site was built be Abd al-Malik ibn Marawan of the Umayyads in 695 AD. These inscriptions represent the stance of non Trinitarian Christianity in Late Antiquity and polemics against Trinitarian Christianity . Yes the inscriptions (with some changes) make it to the Qur'an. However, not much is Islamic (as we know Islam now) about them. Even the name Muhammad(an) in these inscriptions could very well be Jesus (Luxenberg)

More likely than not al-Masjid al-Aqsa was supposed to be the cultic center of what was to become Islam (gasp!)
